What are the men nt the left doing? They are taking Inventory. What
is the man at the right doing? Nothing. He can't do anything until
the men at the left are through with inventory. His engfne has broken
down and he can't finish a job for a fussy customer, because he needs a
part to make his engine run and he can't get that part from anyone
hut the Messrs. Left.
Mr. Right will lose a customer so will the Messrs. Left. Their loss
will be Mr. Right. He'll be sore because the Left concern caused him to
lose his customer. He's justified. He doesn't care about the Lefts'
troubles. He wants the goods. The Lefts can't hunt up that part until in
ventory is over. So is repeated, in business, the story of the ftorseshoe nail.
How do you take your inventory ? Do you still stick to the ancient method
of itemizing your stock in a book, to be copied and recopied slowly and
laboriously? Does your inventory taking clog business and waste time?
The Library Bureau way of taking inventory will make the work simple
any number of your staff can work at the same time and independ
ently. That gives you speed. The L. B. way is self-checking. It makes
skips hard instead of easy. That gives you accuracy. The L. B. way
doesn't block business, and it docs save mix-ups. L. B. way will
help Messrs. Left keep Mr. Right satisfied and so helps keep Mr.
Right's business.
Look into the L. B. way. Come to our store and have us demonstrate this
better method of taking inventory or, if you say so, wi'll bring the
demonstration to you. Anyway, send for booklet that explains fully.

.says that It will consider that It has
rendered a great service If It can only
stir public opinion to the point of
adopting incisures that will afford a
permanent solution of the problem.
The beard points out that never In
" tlie hi'tory of the t'nlted States ha-i
fhcre been a strike Involving nil of the
-railroads In a great section of the
"country. The danger threatened by
''tic concerted nctlon of the engineers
on these fifty-two railroads In the Has:
represented, therefore, a new- and start
ling phase of the relations between
capital and labor.
The board tries to Impress upon the
jiubllc tho seriousness of the situation
that would have confronted this coun
try If the engineers had acted as they
v.oted and quit work. The railroads In
volved In the controversy, It U polntej

npvrnnr of Billion,
Their annual operating revenues ex
ceed 1.000,000,0(10, or nenrly 40 per
cent of the total for all the railroads
of thi country. They carry nearly one
Jialf of the freight traffic of the United
States, and over two-fifths of the pas
nengcr traffic. Excluding general offi
cers, the annual payroll of the em
ployees amounts to $446,000,000, and the
annual compensation of the engineers
alone to nearly $38,000,000. The popu
lation of a frreat area of the country
nerved by these roads le, about 37,600,
000, or more than 40 per cent, of the
total population of the country. The
section of the country represents at
least four-tenths of the wealth of the
entire I'nlted States.
The board points out further that a
rtrlke would have left the large cities
of the Kast with their food -supplies ex
hnusted within a week. The milk sup
ply probably would not have lasted
mere than a day. The board adds that
n successful general strike for the
Hastern district of the United States
would have put that great section of
the. country In much the same situation
that confronted France a few yeara aijo
dur'ng a general railroad strike there.
"It Is evident." says the board, "that
pr a nrcat section of the United States
p, ra'lroad strike can nn longer be con
sidered as n matter which primarily af
JoctH the railroads, operators and em
ployees. It Is therefore Imperative that
Tiome other way be found to settle dif
ferences between railroads and their
o.tiployecs than by strikes."
1 I.nlior Holds Control.
The nrbltrntors contend that the bal
;nnce of the power In Iho control of
J wages, which was tlrst with the rail
jroads, has now passed to organized la
Sbor. They point out that the llrst con
irerted movement on the part of rall-
foad organized labor was In J002, and
Jthat thero has been a gradually tie
Vveloplng sense of power nn the part of
